    Our sincere condolences to the family of Ethel Hitt. ….We were close to her daughter.( Diane)…in our Youth Department at MEMORIAL BAPTIST CHURCH many years ago. Ethel was always a very loving and kind lady. My parents (FRANK AND WANDA HODGES)…spoke highly of her as well. God brought a beautiful lady home to be with Christ , the day she passed this life. She will surely be missed, until we ALL meet again one day. GOD BLESS THIS FAMILY. From RONNY & LANETTE FORTNER.????

    My condolences to Roger and Diane on the loss of their beloved Mom(Ethel) and to the family and friends who are grieving.
    May you rejoice in the knowledge that she has graduated to a new home and has joined an army of angels.

    May fond memories of Ethel bring you comfort during this hard time in your life. Look back on all the good memories you were able to have and smile at the fact that you were able to share these before she passed away. My hearts and prayers go out to you and your family. God has promised us that we will soon be reunited with our loved ones. “There is going to be a resurrection,” the Bible confirms at Acts 24:15. “Do not be amazed at this,” Jesus assures us, “for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28, 29)
